Alatus, a new innovation and learning centre provides contemporary pedagogy spaces within a sustainable and adaptable environment. The proposed building is constructed primarily of exposed concrete and timber with intricate timber facade and shading elements.
The building draws reference from the site and captures the identity of the campus. It is designed to generate an environment that pursues the notion of learning and creates a sense of cohesion and identity. A state of the art 162 seat presentation space, a double-height gallery, 9 flexible learning commons and multiple maker spaces form this new iconic building. The integration as a technology hub for robotics, coding, creativity and research, is a natural progression for a school that strives for academic excellence.
The two-level timber building sensitively responds to its context and creates strong links to the senior student centre and middle school teaching and commons buildings.
